Straight Arrow Products, Inc, the Makers of the Original Mane ‘n Tail, have been Kentucky Derby trainers’ favorite products for years!
Every year Mane ‘n Tail has the distinct privilege to attend the Derby via those trainers who faithfully use our products. This year our long standing relationship with D. Wayne Lukas and our new alliance with Todd Pletcher has allowed us to invite some amazing guests to join us at the 137th Kentucky Derby! We have been so ecstatic with all the press from our involvement in POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, that we wanted to ‘thank’ Morgan Spurlock, the man behind the movie…in some way! We invited Morgan and his Dad, Ben to join us at the Kentucky Derby, a first for both.
We were lucky enough to see the behind-the-scenes early Derby morning, at the ‘Barns’ where all the trainers keep their horses and get them ready for the big race.
Before the races kicked off later that afternoon, we indulged in a to-die-for brunch at the legendary Seelbach Hilton’s Oak Room. Then it was off to the race, the mint juleps were flowing and there were incredible hats everywhere to be seen…and a good ole’ Kentucky time was had by all! We also hosted OK! Magazine’s Celebrity Editor, Valerie Nome…it was her first Kentucky Derby as well!
Bets were placed, but none of us expected “Animal Kingdom” to be the winner. Needless to say, we didn’t come home with any more cash, but we did have a ton of fun!
